HTC One M8, Galaxy S4 and Moto G Only GPe Versions Left in Play Store

The Google Play store now only carries select Play versions of devices.

All of the smartphones have been eliminated from the retailer except the HTC One M8, Moto G and the Galaxy S4. The HTC One M7 and the Sony Z Ultra are no longer available there. The company did not give any reason as to why those devices were taken out of the line-up.

They could have been removed to make room for the upcoming Android L line. However, nothing has been confirmed at this time by any of the companies who make these devices.

The Galaxy S5 Google Play edition might launch sometime soon as a new leaked image of the device surfaced on the internet this month.

The device recently passed through Bluetooth certification and made a brief appearance in the Google Play store support page. @evleaks added to those other sightings by posting up this new image on Twitter earlier today. The GPe looks identical to the regular version.

Samsung released a Google Play version of the S4 last year so the company would be keeping in step by launching an S5 this year. HTC also released a version of the one M7 last year and has already launched a GPe M8 in 2014. Its Korean competitor seems to be taking its time.

The Galaxy S5 launched earlier this year and replaces the S4 as Samsung's current flagship device and features what the company deems a "glam" design with a perforated back plate that shines in different lighting conditions. It will have full LTE coverage, Wi-Fi MIMO 802.11 to cut down buffering, and a download booster that will allow users to download 1GB worth of media in 30 seconds.
